"Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand! Men of the West!" ~ Aragorn at the Black Gate, The Lord of the Rings

Each year in the last two weeks of December, we celebrate the very best of The Solari Report.
This coming week, in our first part, we publish four favorites from our weekly interviews and Special Reports during 2019. The following week, we will publish links to the News Trends & Stories analysis from our 2019 Wrap Ups—all three quarterly Wrap Ups and the 2018 Annual Wrap Up published in January 2019.
This year, the Solari team invested considerable time and resources documenting and exposing many of the risks we face. And yet, I continue to be optimistic about our future. At the heart of my optimism is an appreciation for the lessons of spiritual warfare. My favorite Bible story is the Story of Gideon, which I discussed with Thomas Meyer in his home in Basel in the spring of 2019.
Another reason for optimism is our growing awareness of biophysics, which is unleashing greater knowledge regarding wellness and consciousness. This year, Ulrike Granögger provided us with outstanding insights on the revolution in biophysics with her Mathematics of the Genetic Code video in her Future Science series. These insights have revolutionized my understanding of who we are and what it means to be human.
Risks do abound as change accelerates. This year, we wanted to focus your attention on the proliferation of rules and regulations as well as rising prices. Patrick Wood joined us for a discussion of Technocracy, and Rob Kirby joined us to discuss Inflation. These are issues I want to make sure you integrate into your personal and business financial planning for 2020.
Our four selections for the Best of the Solari Report 2019 give you an opportunity over the holidays to connect with four of the most inspiring people I know. Enjoy!
My next Money & Markets report will publish on January 2, 2020. Post your questions for me here or send them to Ask Catherine. I will also be interviewing Dr. Farrell at the end of the month, so if you have questions or suggestions for our top stories of the year, do the same.
It has been a pleasure working for you this year. On behalf of the entire Solari team, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
